Little bits of Old Buckenham history

Behind the mantlepiece
Several years ago an old house in Fen Street, Old Buckenham, was being renovated. When the mantlepiece around the fireplace was removed several items of card were found that must have slipped down a gap many years previously. Nothing world shattering but little pieces of paper that give an insight into life well over a hundred years ago.
The blog editor was able to borrow the items and scan them so that they can be looked at today. Here are some of them. The images may be a bit faded but they can be enlarged by just clicking on the picture.
